Sleek Blush by 3

Sleek is a drugstore equivalent brand from the United Kingdom, although I think it is not always sold everywhere but these blushes are worth the extra hassle. Ladies and gentlemen, I shall present to you Sleek Blush by 3. It comes with five different palette shades. Mine are in the shade Lace and Sugar. Let me just tell you from the beginning, these blushes blown me away. Overall, they have great color pay off. Not too sheer that you have to really work your brush to get the product and it’s not too pigmented for those who tend to go heavy handed. The product is not chalky and so far I don’t have any problem with fallout. The packaging is very sleek and it comes with a full size mirror. The best part is it costs me 10 GBP for each palette and it contains 20 gr of product in total.

Sugar – All three colors are leaning towards the warmer shades. Muscovado has chunky golden shimmer which is too bad because it is a great contour color. Turbinado and Demerara are matte colors. Turbinado is a plum red color but don’t be intimidated because once it is blended, it gives the effect of natural flushed cheeks. Demerara is a terracotta color perfect for summer time if you like to go for the sunkissed look without being an Oompa Loompa.

Left: Sleek Blush by 3 in Lace (Crochet, Guipure, Chantilly). Right: swatches of Crochet, Guipure, Chantilly.

Lace – The colors in this palette are more neon. Guipure is a peachy pink color with golden shimmer. Crochet and Chantilly are matte colors. Crochet is a straight orange neon color but with good blending application, you can achieve beautiful fun look. Chantilly is a bright reddish pink color, and if you are light handed with this one, you can create a porcelain doll look.


I love Sleek Blush by 3. Perfect for travelling or for everyday in your make-up bag. What else can I say? Great quality, great price, great value.
